Modifications of Passive Films

By P. Marcus Copyright 1994

    The modification of passive films is a promising method of improving the corrosion resistance of metallic materials. As well as reviewing a wide spectrum of film modifications and their effects on passivity and to corrosion resistance, papers presented at this international symposium deal with chemical composition, chemical states and electronic properties of passive films.

    Series Introduction, Preface, I Chemical and Electronic Properties of Passive Films II Kinetics of Passivation and Electrochemical Properties of Passive Films III Surface Treatments and Film Modifications IV Passivity Breakdown
